I finally see what people are talking about with Innovation and Lawsuits...

Do I really have to say any more? Most of Apple's lawsuits are in their mobile space. So what happens in an industry where they haven't sued nearly as much like the laptop industry? Do the companies innovate any more? Sure as hell doesn't look like it to me. As a matter of fact, I would say that as of right now, the Android industry has more innovation than the current Ultrabrook industry as a result of Android OEMs having to innovate because of the lawsuits.

Lawsuits hurt innovation? I don't know. But it would appear that no (or few) lawsuits certainly hinder innovation though.
